Event description

Description

A four piece band who take their inspiration from the pioneers of Rock 'n' Roll. Recreating and reinventing the unique sound of the 1950's as they emulate the greats from Presley to Perkins and Cochran to Cash.

Harking back to a time when the size of the turn ups on your jeans and how much grease you could pile in your hair determined your stature, they bring you a mixture of original material, authentic 50's covers and modern songs with a rockabilly vibe.

A night of the finest 50's Rock and Roll and Rockabilly.

In July 2014 they won the People's Choice Award of the Rock The House Competition where they were invited to perform at the Houses of Parliament; in July 2013 they won Southport’s Band Royale competition beating 40 other bands to the top spot. In 2014 they stormed Chorley Live and performed for thousands at Preston's Christmas Lights Switch-on.

"Doug Perkins and The Spectaculars... if you saw that name outside a pub you'd probably go in wouldn't you?"

- Mark Radcliffe, Radio 2
